OLYMPIC WINDOW: Štefečeková wins first medal for Slovakia

Zuzana Štefečeková won a silver medal at the Olympic Games in trap shooting on August 11. The 24-year-old Štefečeková from Nitra, 24, shared first place after qualification with the Finnish Mäkeläo-Nummel, but during the competition, the Finnish shooter proved unstoppable and won with an Olympic record 91 points. In the past, Štefečeková has done well in China: two years ago, she scored a world record in the World Cup in Ching-yuan. “I felt confident with four targets to go but it just didn’t happen. But I am very happy with the silver, anyway,” she said. With her medal Slovakia ranks 20th among countries with Olympic medals, according to SITA.
